Age-Adjusted Effective Modulus Method for Creep of High-Performance Concrete
This paper discusses the suitability of using several creep theories of common concrete for creep of high-performance concrete (HPC). Based on the Age-Adjusted Effective Modulus method (AEMM) for creep of concrete, Improved Dischinger (ID) method and the Elastic Continuation and Plastic Flow (ECPF) theory for calculating relaxation coefficient and considering characteristics of HPC, a method is set up for calculating the creep of HPC under changing stresses, and comparing results gotten by the method with some experimental data, it can be considered that the above methods are suit for the calculation of creep of HPC.
